Although we welcome new cyclists, it has recently been pointed out to me that there has been evidence of poor cycling discipline.
For the safety of us all, new riders especially should read this and if they feel unable to comply, then it maybe that club riding is not for them.
To highlight a few issues in particular:
· Ride no more than two abreast - keeping to the left of the road.
· Ride in a straight line - riding erratically or making sudden movements is dangerous to other members of the group. If you are unable to adhere to this, you will still be welcome on the ride but you will be told to ride at the back.
· Ensure the group stays together – although this is the responsibility of everyone, those riding at the back are in the best position to inform those riders in front of them should anyone fall behind. There will be no sympathy for anyone riding off the front!
Thank you and Happy (and safe) Cycling!
